“I’ll Get Arrested Next Time”

Recognize these tshirts?  That's right - "Stand with Randy"

Recognize these tshirts? That's right - "Stand with Randy"

Insane Jane coordinated a protest in D.C. at the White House this week – more pipeline stuff.

A Lincoln resident / former school teacher / aged and fragile BOLD member had actually planned to get arrested— and she did.

While Nebraskans were getting arrested, Insane Jane threw her group under the bus and took a “step back” to avoid arrest.   And she thinks the authors of this blog are “cowards”…phleeease, Jane….

The Omaha World Herald reported “Kleeb opted to not get arrested Monday so she could coordinate efforts from the outside. She said she planned to get arrested as part of a second group of Nebraskans who will arrive in Washington on Sept. 2 and will join the final day of protests on Sept. 3.”

So, Insane Jane is actually planning to get arrested, and is essentially committing a pre-meditated crime.

A Hastings area reader wrote us this week and said “If Jane is talking about getting arrested…isn’t that some kind of violation of Hastings school board ethics?”  Let’s face it, Insane Jane isn’t exactly the kind of role model we want for our kids down here in Hastings.  So, good point, reader – thanks for making it.

Our favorite line of this OWH article was “Obama was not at home Monday — he was vacationing in Martha’s Vineyard.”  Those BOLD folks just can’t seem to catch people at home when they visit!


Flashlights, Jane & the Governor’s Mansion – Oh My!

In August, The folks at BOLD held several “Stand With Randy” events across the state including “Africans Stand with Randy”, “Women Stand with Randy” and our favorite, “People who hate Bush and Stand with Obama also Stand with Randy” also held an event at 9:30pm on a Friday night called “Shine a Little Light on Heineman”.

Insane Janers with Flashlights

Protesters were encouraged to go to the Governor’s mansion at 9:30pm and shine flashlights at his house.  Do we have to point out the obvious here?  This must be one of the dumbest things we’ve ever heard of…almost.

The funniest thing of all is that Governor Dave wasn’t even home at the time of the protest.  Epic Fail?  We think so.

If Gov Dave had been home, wouldn’t an angry mob of people standing outside his house yelling and shining flashlights at his home be considered assault?  At minimum, harassment?  We’re pretty confident that if authorities would have gotten involved and started arresting Jane’s hippies, she would have personally avoided arrest and thrown her croonies under the bus, just like she did in Washington last week (more on that later).

Our friends at LeavenworthSt posted this YouTube video that has some interesting interviews with the flashlighters:

Interestingly enough, these folks will blindly vote for Obama, even when his State Department is in support of the current pipeline route.  Kool-Aid from Hastings, anyone?

We’re still trying to get the downlow on who this Randy person is that Insane Jane is standing with, and will be writing more about that soon.

Insane Jane Writes Us

We reported that we received a private email from the Queen of Insane, and that the emaill was, well…confirmation of our efforts here.

Insane Jane writes Hastings Watcher

We’ve authenticated this email address through a google search, and it did in fact come from Insane Jane’s email account.  Here’s what it says:


As someone who struggled with mental illness for years, which literally almost took my life, you have stepped over the line calling me insane.

You should ask yourself why you call for transparency and then do not even use your own name.

Get some courage.


Jane Fleming Kleeb


So much commentary can be made about this short email, but we’ll try to give it to you in a nutshell:

#1:   Insane Jane used to struggle with mental illness?  Everyone knows liberalism is a mental disease.

#2:  Watch how Insane Jane plays the victim…again.  Classic liberal line.

#3:  How many times did we hear “stepped over the line”, “gone too far” etc. from Democrats in the 2008 election cycle?  Apparently she learns from the best.

#4:  The names of the authors of this blog are insignificant, because we don’t publicly advocate for the advancement of communism.  All we do is point out how insane Jane is.  And let’s face it – that’s a very simple task.

If you know a good psychiatrist and would like to recommend him/her to Insane Jane, please forward contact information direct to Jane: eatingpolitics@gmail.com.  Let’s together get Insane Jane the help she needs to overcome her mental illness.

Resign Jane, You Hypocrite!

Leavenworth St published a spot-on article about Insane Jane’s blatant school board campaign finance gaff.  We couldn’t have explained it any better, so we’re going to direct you to StreetSweeper’s post:  The Whole Story On Jane Kleeb’s Guilt.  We would like to thank the authors of Leavenworth Street for their reporting.  We all know we can’t depend on the Lincoln Journal Star, Omaha World Herald or KHAS to give us the facts.  Thanks, Street Sweeper!

In addition to everything StreetSweeper is reporting, we’d like to add a couple things.

Insane Jane has consistently questioned the campaign finance books of Republican candidates and organizations across Nebraska.  So, she’s an enormous hypocrite on this issue.   And you’re surprised?

For Insane Jane to say “oh, whoops, sorry – I’m just a mom!” on this issue is unacceptable.  Let’s face it – a politico like Insane Jane knows better than to wait until election day to report her campaign contributions.  If any Republican besides RINO Senators Brad Ashford or Hasting’s own Dennis Utter pulled this type of stunt, Insane Jane would publicly chastise him/her.  The voters of Hastings should be furious (and many are!) over Insane Jane’s hypocritical double-standard.  WE need to hold her accountable for intentionally misleading voters in our community.

Not to mention – $8,000 to run for school board in Hastings Nebraska?  Are you kidding?  That’s what it takes for your well-known name to win?  Jane really is insane, and so are the contributors to her campaign!

Insane Jane:  We expect more out of our elected officials.  You should resign from the Hastings School Board immediately and issue an apology to the citizens of Hastings for being such an amateur.  This is truly unacceptable.

We don’t have to go far to prove our point about the media love-fest with Insane Jane.  Check out this recent article from the Lincoln Journal Star where Jane is quoted telling how much she loves Nebraska millionaire Democratic contributor and major funding source of Bold Nebraska, Omaha’s own baby-killer, Dick Holland.  And the day before, it was apparently imperative that the LJS posted this article titled “Jane Kleeb’s View of Dick Holland“.  One question Don Walton:  Who gives a damn and why do you hang on every word Insane Jane says?  Walton, you make us sick.  (You too, Nancy Hicks!)

We’ll let you know when Don Walton decides to write a piece about Jane’s favorite fashion trends for 2011.  We’re betting it will describe her love for neck-hiding tops that she buys while on frequent shopping trips with Sen. Danielle Conrad.

Also, we recently got a personal email from our very own Queen of Insane.  We haven’t replied yet, but we’re going to do it publicly here.   We promise you’ll get a kick out of it, and we’ll share that to you next week so be sure to check back.

Insane Jane Pleads Guilty

Unless you live under a rock, you’ve more than likely heard about Insane Jane’s naughty campaign finance shinanigans.  We don’t have much else to report, since this press release from the Nebraska Republican Party pretty much sums it up:


For Immediate Release: June 22, 2011

Bold Nebraska Editor Admits to Multiple

Campaign Finance Violations Following NEGOP Complaint

LINCOLN, NE – As the result of a complaint filed by the Nebraska Republican Party, a Nebraska Accountability and Disclosure Commission (NADC) investigation has determined that Bold Nebraska editor Jane Kleeb is guilty of multiple campaign finance violations stemming from her 2010 race for the Hastings School Board.

According to a June 17 plea agreement (page 1, page 2, page 3) provided by the NADC, Kleeb admitted to multiple violations of state campaign finance laws, including her failure to properly register her campaign committee, report campaign expenditures, file required campaign statements, or accurately report late, out-of-state contributions.

“Jane Kleeb is the de facto voice of Nebraska Democrats and Ben Nelson’s most ardent defender,” said Mark Fahleson, Chairman of the Nebraska Republican Party. “She has been forced to admit her shameful disregard for the laws of our state, and one wonders whether Sen. Nelson will do the right thing and publicly denounce her violations or continue to accept her support as they fight to protect ObamaCare and defend Nelson’s Cornhusker Kickback.”

Fahleson says the violations should result in civil penalties and fines of up to $2,000, but that Kleeb would likely receive a significantly lower fine as a result of her guilty plea.

In her settlement agreement with the NADC, Kleeb states that the Hastings school board race was her “first political campaign” and that she had a “mistaken belief” as to what state campaign finance laws required.

Kleeb has held national partisan campaign positions since 2003 and her husband Scott ran unsuccessfully for federal office in Nebraska in 2006 and 2008.

“Jane Kleeb either willfully ignored the law in this case or was recklessly uneducated about it, simply to achieve a political goal,” Fahleson said. “Nebraskans should be concerned with her conduct here and ask serious questions about her knowledge, expertise, or personal motivation on any future issue facing our state or her continued defense of Ben Nelson.”

Insane Jane Hijacks Events

Insane Jane has a long history of despising conservative groups across Nebraska, especially Americans For Prosperity.

The Americans For Prosperity Foundation held their “Running on Empty” National Tour in Omaha and Grand Island this week.  Both events had a crystal clear message:  Gas prices are too high and it’s hurting our economy and the poorest of American families.

Insane Jane decided to hijack both events to promote her pipeline agenda.

As best we can tell, AFP has never made any statements on their website or taken sides on the TransCanada pipeline.

We’re going to report on both events, so let us break it down:

Omaha – June 8th at Walnut Grove Park:

First off, there was no “bus”.  Insane Jane tells people to “Take a stand”.  We’re not sure what that means, exactly, since this event was about a concern over high gas prices and the AFP folks are saying they want lower gas prices.  Logic tells us that if BoldNebraska protested this event, they therefore want higher gas prices.  Big surprise.

Apparently Jane wasn’t at this event…

One reader of this website said she counted 134 people at this event.  We actually counted the number of people in one of the photos we were sent, and there were indeed well over 60.  How is this shameful?  We’ve seen many BoldNebraska events where less than a dozen people show up.  Like that time that Insane Jane convinced her hippies to put black plastic trash bags over themselves and roll down a hill to simulate an oil spill.  We’re glad to report nobody broke their hip at that event.

Here’s the 6 people who were “pushing back” at the Omaha event:

Wow, now that’s pushing back.   In all fairness, there were also two BOLD guys in suits who showed up late.  That makes 8.  Wow.  We also heard that the supporters of high gas prices were driving gas guzzling vehicles, which is just ironic and bizarre.

Who wears a suit with a jacket to an evening rally in a park?  Weird.  We wonder what would happen if folks showed up to the next Bold event with signs that said “BoldNebraska is Running on B.S.”  We’re really not sure what the point was to the sign, but the gal with the peace symbol shirt seems to be having a grand old time.

Grand Island – June 9th at Stolley Park:

Insane Jane did show up to this event, and so did about a half dozen of her dried-up and crusty old hippie BoldNebraska followers.  The sign in the background, “Save the world from the Kochs” is especially amusing.  Americans For Prosperity is funded by evil oil tycoon billionaires who make decisions based on greedy profits!  Oh, the humanity!  And then the Koch brothers fork money over to fund Americans For Prosperity and for the Koch Environmental Projects and lots of other things.   C’mon, BoldNebraska – are we really supposed to believe that you’re not being funded by Susie Buffet, George Soros and some other left-wing commies?   Do you really want to open up this discussion?  Becuase we’re happy to have it if you’d like us to start looking into your books.  By the way, who really does fund BoldNebraska?  Hmmm, maybe a call down to the Nebraska Accountability and Disclosure Office on Monday morning would be would answer more of our questions.  Where’s the transparency, Insane Jane?

It was overheard that after some proding, this old hippie finally admitted she wanted to see higher gas prices.  From the KHAS news spot:  “These protestors hijacked the event with their own mission:  To discuss environmental issues.  Particualarly, the proposed TransCanadian oil pipeline”.  Unfortunately, her admission to wanting higher gas prices didn’t make the news spot.

Here’s an analogy:  KHAS is to Insane Jane as CNN is to President Obama.   KHAS could have chosen to include interview footage of Lt. Governor Sheehy, Congressman Smith, AFP President Tim Phillips, State Senators Gloor or Fulton, GI Mayor Vavricek in their news spot, but instead chose Insane Jane.  We’re not surprised.

We would have loved to have been a fly on baby Willa’s head in this exchange between Insane Jane and one of our favorite Conservative State Senators, Tony Fulton.  We may need to hold a caption contest for this photo in the future.

We’re pretty sure she meant “afp”, not “agp”.

We’ll be looking for ideas from our readers on specifics about hijacking BoldNebraska’s future events.  Sometimes, although it’s not our style, we need to fight fire with fire.   And this is just another example in a long list of reasons why BoldNebraska has forced our hand to put together this blog.

What are your thoughts?

Oil Covered Chocolates

Every good liberal needs to feel victimized and point a finger at someone.  On the federal level, now that President Bush is out of office and the Senate is controlled by Democrats, they don’t have much to fall back on.   Let’s face it – Boehner is kind of boring.

Insane Jane finally found someone to fill that void in Nebraska when it comes to the proposed TransCanadian oil pipline.

Senator Jim Smith has been a strong advocate of businesses, promoting the crazy idea that business owners should be able to make a profit (Oh, those evil greedy corporations!).  Senator Smith, you’re so naughty!

So Insane Jane celebrated her “point-n-blame” idea with this terribly photo-shopped picture of Senator Smith with what appears to be a box of oil-covered chocolates.    BoldNebraska loved the photo so much, they even made it their Facebook profile picture.  How bold…

Note:  If Sen. Smith really had a box of chocolates on the unicameral floor, we’re pretty sure that Sen. Kathy Campbell would have immediately gotten  involved in the discussion and sided with Sen. Smith no matter what was being debated.  Also, Sen. Gwen Howard would have told another story about how  Sen. Brad Ashford and her once shared a box of Caramel Delights when they were social workers during the Great Depression back in the ’30s.

Hating Oil

Kind of dramatic...

Kind of dramatic?

BoldNebraska and their aging 1960s hippie members who want nothing more than to relive the golden days of Woodstock continue to rant their opposition to TransCanada’s proposed oil pipeline over the Ogallala aquifer and western Nebraska.  This one issue has been a major priority for Bold Nebraska.

We actually applaud BoldNebraska for bringing this issue up in a big way.  Afterall, the Ogallala aquifer is the country’s largest underground water source and nobody wants to see it contaminated.

It would probably come as a surprise to Insane Jane to find out that we don’t work for the oil pipeline, or anyone who represents it.  In fact, we have some concerns of our own.

For example, we’ve heard chatter about TransCanada using eminent domain and threating condemnation of properites that refuse to sell thier land to TransCanada.  That’s bad.

Some have argued that the pipeline could be moved to  go around the Ogallala aquifer.  TransCanada doesn’t like this idea because it’s more expensive, and would increase oil costs to Nebraska consumers.  But this argument is definitely grounds for a legitimate discussion.

BoldNebraska has argued that the pipeline is an environmental catastrophe waiting to happen.  And they simply don’t want it, and are citing several reasons why.

We know the real reason Insane Jane and progressives throughout our country are against this pipeline, and oil in general.  We have a fundamental disagreement with you and it revolves around freedom.  Freedom to make money and profits (God forbid, Jane!).  Freedom to own, manage and operate a business that provides a necessary resource to our economy.  Freedom to fill up the van and take the kids to soccer practice without having to sacrifice something else.

You think regulating gas intake, increasing gas prices and getting people to drive less is a good thing.  But it’s actually just downright unAmerican and socialist. And so is regulating a business out of a project.

At this point in time oil is the only readily accessible and available commodity that allows us to, you know – get from Hastings to Lincoln to give our Senators corny gifts from BoldNebraska.  Or to drive half way across the state to attend forums on food deserts in Omaha.

Focusing on eminent domain and safety VS profit is actually quite cunning and brilliant of Insane Jane.  Heck, she might just get her way on this one if she sticks to those talking points.  Too bad they aren’t her own personal reasons for opposing the pipeline…

Here’s what the Governor had to say about Insane Jane and her oil pipeline position:

And Insane Jane responded:

Why pick on Insane Jane?

Insane Jane and her progressive “grassroots” organization BoldNebraska have promoted everything from extreme business regulation to redistribution of wealth.  Someone needs to hold Insane Jane and her croonies accountable for outright lies and attacks on conservative groups, respectable conservative Nebraskan politicians and America.

To put it very simply, Insane Jane is a socialist and a communist.  Her priorities come straight from President Obama’s talking points and her strategies are often less than honorable.

Like most of the national main stream media, liberal Nebraska press loves Insane Jane.  In fact, almost every news spot or article that she’s involved in completely ignores opposing conservative logic.

It is high time someone points out her ridiculous claims, and that’s just what we intend to do.

The anonymous conservative authors of insanejanekleeb.wordpress.com are setting out to combat Bold Nebraska’s misinformation campaign and discover what their organization is attempting to do to our communities, our state and our country, and to report on it.  We will not stand by idly while the truth is being ignored and American principles are being eroded.

Insane Jane, you’ve finally met your match.
